📼 Nail your tech interview by showing interest. Tip #1: Be curious. Make sure that before the interview, you're prepared by having reviewed the LinkedIn profiles of each interviewer, any company pages, or blog posts, and review the job description as well. It's important to know who will be interviewing you. Have questions prepared for each person just based on their level, their role within the company, just so you can be specific and get what you need out of each interview as well. Also, make sure to ask clarifying questions if there is something you don’t understand!
📼You can nail your tech interview if you share a prior experience. Tip #2: Have examples prepared. Before the interview, have 3 to 5 stories of projects that you've worked on, successes that you've made, and barriers that you've overcome. Be able to communicate the scale and the scope of the work that you've accomplished. Make sure that recruiters can get a glimpse of your abilities and tools!
Want to Nail Your Tech Interview? Be concise! - Tip #3: Communicate Well
It's important to be clear and succinct in how you articulate your responses. Try to keep your responses somewhere between 30 seconds and 4 minutes long. Talk through your responses concisely. A really good way to do this is by utilizing the star method (situation, task, action, and result). Group your examples in a very structured way so it’s easier to articulate brief and yet detailed answers.
